It was not on top Of my list to see this attraction but we had extra time with our privet tour and the guide suggested to take the cable car. It was breathtaking!

The cable car ride is the best thing to do in Dalat.you will enjoy beautiful views and an awesome Buddhist temple at the end of the ride. I would strongly suggest doing this.

I am surprised that this is only rated #4 on things to do. As far as I am concerned if you only had one thing to do this is the best one. Access is easy. You hail any taxi and say "Cable Car". They all know where to take you. It costs 40,000 dong taxi. Then you go up stairs... More

Maybe you like Karaoke. Maybe you find happiness hearing the locals belt out lyrics you don't understand at volumes high enough to shatter a window. Maybe you even join them when you're in the mood (i.e. drunk enough). Maybe you fall asleep to the unharmonious melodies echoing down the street and finding their way into your hotel room, even though... More

Saw someone's comments that cable car has stopped and noone is there. Should note that the cable car is closed for 2 hours lunch, which makes it special and quiet because the tourists from the tour buses will not get to the monastery till after 2.30pm. We went by taxi around 10am (after the morning tour buses are gone) and... More

When we arrived and crawled to Buddha incredibly the older priest hit the bell for praying. Awesome flower garden and beautiful scenery etc. Don't miss this place. You can go on a cable car.

This is an absolutely beautiful place. So peaceful and tranquil with perfectly pristine gardens and the cable car ride is a must. I would also recommend a boat ride in the lake!!
